These soft, moist cookies are full of health benefits: from the anti-inflammatory action of the cocoa, to the fiber in the flax, and the healthy fats from the avocado and coconut oils. Enjoy these as a grain free, dairy free, guilt free snack!
Preheat the oven to 375F
Combine these ingredients in a Cuisinart type mixer until smooth:
1 ripe medium avocado
1/4-1/3 c honey (depending on taste)
1/4 c melted coconut oil
1 t vanilla
1/4 c ground flax (optional)
In a medium mixing bowl combine the following:
1/2 c cocoa powder
1/2 c almond flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon (optional)
Add contents of Cuisinart to the well mixed dry ingredients.
1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c chopped walnuts (optional)
Place parchment paper on 2 cookie sheets. Drop spoonfuls of batter to the desired size (cookies will spread and rise slightly).
Makes 15-20 cookies, depending on size.
Bake approximately 20 minutes; until firm and dry on top. Allow to cool before removing from the paper. Can be stored frozen in an airtight container.
